Secret Santa Stuff

What a whirlwind of holiday parties this weekend! 2 on Friday, 1 on Saturday. But it was so much fun getting into the holiday mood!

After all the fun of the gift exchange, we actually got some knitting done! I finished a pair of socks for a coworker. She is going to be so surprised! She sees me knitting socks all the time and always asks for a pair. But she always jokingly asks for everything I am making. "Is that for me?" she always says. She has even commented on this pair of socks. She likes the color.

pink Sonja socks

Yarn: Crazy Monkey
Needles: Knit Picks size 1 (2.5mm)
64 stitches 3X2 ribbing size 9
short row heel and toe

This is in the natural light and true to the color.

Now only one more WIP for the holidays and that is my stocking. And I have an entire week to get it done in. But I am knitting it on size 0 needles (2mm), what was I thinkin??? If I can control myself and be monogamous to this project, I know I can get it done in plenty of time.

MJ Stocking

Yarn: Opal Mosaic red and green
Needles: Addi Turbo size 0 (2mm) 16inch circular
120 stitches, short row toe, afterthought heel

I only have to finish the cuff, a ruffle, and the afterthought heel. No problem right? Knitting monogomy is a big challenge!
So many projects, so much pretty yarn....
